Hochul Finally Responds To Zeldin Calling For Criminals To Actually Be Properly Jailed

This past Tuesday evening during the gubernatorial deabte, New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) finally issued a response to Republican nominee Lee Zeldin regarding Zeldin’s avid insistence that criminals need to be locked behind bars, and her response was quite shocking.

“I stated that the first day that I’m in office, I’m going to declare a crime emergency and suspend Castles Bail and these other pro criminal laws, because there is a crime emergency,” stated Zeldin. “My opponent thinks that right now there’s a polio emergency going on, but there’s not a crime emergency.”

“Different priorities that I’m hearing from people right now, they’re not being represented from this governor who still to this moment, what are we, half way through the debate?” Zeldin went on. “She still hasn’t talked about locking up anyone committing any crimes.”

“Anyone who commits a crime, under our laws, especially with the changes made to bail, has consequences,” chimed in Hochul. “I don’t know why that’s so important to you. All I know is that we could do more.”

LEE ZELDIN (R): Yeah, I mean, listen, I stated that the first day that I’m in office, I’m going to declare a crime emergency and suspend Castles Bail and these other pro criminal laws, because there is a crime emergency. My opponent thinks that right now there’s a polio emergency going on, but there’s not a crime emergency. Different priorities that I’m hearing from people right now, they’re not being represented from this governor who still to this moment, what are we, half way through the debate? She still hasn’t talked about locking up anyone committing any crimes.

KATHY HOCHUL (D): Anyone who commits a crime, under our laws, especially with the changes made to bail, has consequences. I don’t know why that’s so important to you. All I know is that we could do more.
